The Oscar nominations for the 88th Academy Awards were announce Thursday (January 14th) and it has been revealed that ‘Straight Outta Compton’ will not be competing for ‘Best Picture.’ In what’s been called a “stunning move” the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided against nominating the film, despite being the highest grossing music biographical picture of all time.

This comes as a major blow for the film, especially considering the Academy chose to only nominate eight films for ‘Best Picture’ while there is room for ten. ‘Straight Outta Compton’ was only recognized for ‘Best Original Screenplay’.
